Chinese Whispers


Published April 10, 2013


An evening of stories and discussion about the impact of the 1882
Chinese Exclusion Act (which wasn’t rescinded until 1943!) on the
Chinese American community in San Francisco. This infamous legacy was
both subtly woven into community cultural life, and overtly demarcated
social and geographical boundaries. Chinese Whispers,
a research and storytelling project about the Chinese who helped build
the American West, will present excerpted stories from the Bay Area
which reveal the deep impact of the Exclusion Act on generations of
Chinese American families, and a community story contributor will talk
about memories of a growing up in a San Francisco Chinatown that was
still essentially socially segregated from the rest of the City. This
overlooked history is also very relevant to the ongoing immigration
debate. With the Chinese Historical Society of America, Angel Island
Immigration Station Foundation, filmmaker Felicia Lowe, and more.
